MICHAEL ELKIN

Special to The Jewish News

W

hen looking for a
TV project to pro-
duce, executive
Alan Kirschenbaum hit on a
shore thing.
Mr. Kirschenbaum is an
executive producer and
creator of "Down the Shore,"
the series where the surf and
turf are set at such sites as
Belmawr, N.J., and nearby
Bradley Beach. The Fox
series airs Sunday nights.
A successful TV
writer/producer whose
credits include "Dear John"
and "Anything But Love,"
Alan Kirschenbaum is
anything but a stranger to
the belief that life is a beach.
He spent four summers
down the Jersey shore, wat-
ching the sands of time shift
as he was getting his act
together after graduating
from the University of Penn-
sylvania in 1983.
"I had come from an easy
sheltered life," says the na-
tive New Yorker, "into a
very disturbing, questioning
time of life. It was a time for
me to come out of myself."
Treading water while
deciding on a career, Mr.
Kirschenbaum had some
comforting company while
hitting the beaches of
Seaside Heights and Bradley
Beach. "I learned how im-
portant friendship was to
me," he says. "I learned
those friends I had then
would be my friends for the
rest of my life."
Indeed, they have been.
Best buddies Vic Levin,
whom Mr. Kirschenbaum
actually has known since
grade school, and high
school honcho Phil Rosen-
thal, are writers on the Fox
series.
Of course, during those
sizzling summers of the mid-
'80s, none knew that the
stories behind the hot times
they shared as roomies
would one day find room on a
network schedule.
Not that "Down the
Shore" is that hot. The
stories of life by the sea are
more watered down in their
focus on a group of guys and
gals splashing away the
summer.
But real life . . . "We all
had our hedonistic side,"
recalls Mr. Kirschenbaum.
"It was a time when we got

ponent in. Philadelphia..

drunk, had fun and didn't
accept responsibility."
At 31, Alan Kirschenbaum
is responsible for one of the
more likable Fox summer
entries. Ask him which TV
character is his alter ego —
Zack, the benign teacher;
Aldo, the slimy salesman; or
Eddie, the nerdy tagalong —
and Mr. Kirschenbaum
demurs.
"There are parts of me in
all the characters," he says.
Alan Kirschenbaum readi-
ly admits to one real-life role
model: his dad, Catskills
kibitzer Freddie Roman,
currently starring
Broadway.
"No way would my career
have happened without my
learning about comedy from
my father," says Mr.
Kirschenbaum as a point of
pride.
"In a way, I went into the
family business."
Certainly, Alan Kirschen-
baum is used to the fast
track. As a youngster, he
had worked as a trainer at
Philadelphia's Liberty
racetrack as well as at the
Meadowlands in Newi-,
Jersey, an unusual field of ,
dreams for a Jewish guy.
"All I ever dreamed about
was the racetrack," he says
now.
But some dreams don't
hold up to the light of day-,
"After a while, it wasn't fun
anymore," he remembers of
his thoroughbred ambitions.
But TV comedy still gives
Alan Kirschenbaum a
chuckle. And he can't see be-
ing be bored with a serie,
about life under the boar-
walk.
"Discovering the Jersey Ls
shore was one of the best
things that ever happened to
me," says Mr. Kirschen-
baum.
What could be better?-
"The show doing well
enough so I could buy a
home there."
